"I always said, that my wish is that the British decide with a majority for remaining in the EU. I believe if they decide differently we will lose more than a country, we will lose a history and tradition of Great Britain within the EU which is and has been important for us. And I think, that Europe will become much poorer if Great Britain will leave us."

"There are three possible scenarios - one where the United Kingdom would integrate into the European Economic Area, with Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland, and in this case as you know, the free movement of people, goods, capital and services would be maintained, and the United Kingdom would contribute to the community budget. In this case the trade and investment relationships would not change significantly because the freedom of movement, in general, would be preserved. The second option is like that of Switzerland, in which the the free movement of people, goods, capital and services would also maintained but there would be no contribution to the community budget, and the third, which is the most probable, a formula similar to the CETA (Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) which is the agreement with Canada. This is a free trade agreement which eliminates 99 per cent of customs duties on products being traded. I believe this is the most likely of options because it would answer to the Brexit camp's wish to control borders and limit the free movement of people without changing the flow of goods, capital and services and that is the Canadian formula."

"Hungary has made an additional petition, which is a contribution of funds to compensate for the funds it would lose with Britain's exit, and the third formula, which is the one that the Spanish government is proposing is an acceleration of the process of European integration to eliminate contagion, and to eliminate any emulation effect and to demonstrate that Britain's exit is not the beginning (of the end) of the European process. The document which could serve as a foundation for this qualitative jump, this jump forward, would be the famous one of the five presidents which was presented last year. This is the formula that Spain endorses, to deepen the process of European integration to tackle any temptation to nationalise competences or take steps back in such a way that could lead to Britain's exit being interpreted as the beginning of the end."

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Monday that Europe would become "much poorer if Great Britain will leave us."
Steinmeier was speaking ahead of an EU foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg, three days before Britain holds a referendum on its membership of the European Union.
The Spanish Foreign Minister, meanwhile, said there were three possible scenarios for Britain if it left, including the "most probable", a solution similar to the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which is a free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union, currently pending approval by the Council and the European Parliament.
Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo y Marfil said Spain wanted to deepen the process of European integration to prevent Britain's exit from being interpreted "as the beginning of the end" for the bloc.
